Increasingly militaristic publisher signs deal to bring first official U.S. Army games to consoles.
Capping a week of war game announcements, Ubisoft said today it has struck a deal with the U.S. army to establish a multiplatform Americas Army franchise. Although collaboration between developers and the Department of Defense is increasingly common (see Full Spectrum Warrior and There), todays agreement marks the first time a publisher has been granted an official game license by the military. "Ubisoft has extensive experience in producing best-selling military games, and were looking forward to getting their developers in the field with our soldiers," said Colonel Casey Wardynski, director of the Americas Army game project.
